Anniversary and a Scare

Yesterday, was September 25, which marks my NEDiversary of 3 years of being cancer free!!!!!! I had a scare about 10 days ago. On the 16th, I had my yearly appointment for a mammogram. A mass showed up on the pictures, and 5 days later, I was at the Breast center at the hospital for more pics and an ultrasound. The mass was in my left breast, which I had a biopsy in the spring of 2008. According to the ultrasound, the mass was a 4mm (millimeter) cyst filled with fluid. They said to followup with my doctor and they would see me next year. That is two scares in one year. I am very thankful that I am still cancer free.

It is Kinda Funny Now

Last Sunday and again this afternoon, I volunteered at helping backstage with their current show, "They Are Playing Our House". Next weekend is the last weekend of the show. I opened and closed the curtains, moved props, and the door. That door is hard to move and in the dark hard to see where the door is supposed to placed at. Last Sunday, I kinda shadowed somebody. Today, I did my stuff by myself. The one time, I was supposed to move the door back, I did not get it in its right spot, and when the actor went through the door, the curtain was there, in the way. I couldn't tell if it was in the right place or not. Ooooops, a mistake. Oh, well. It wasn't funny at the time, but it kinda is now. I haven't done backstage since high school. (That is over 20 years.)

Still Don't Have...

...Teacher editions for social studies and part of the science, with only one TE for language. We do have math and the cd for it. We do have a Reading TE and one language TE. We do have science that we are to use for the majority of the time. Did get a social studies cd for teachers to use. We do have our scope and sequences to use. They are helpful, but we really do need all of our teacher resources. They make it easier to teach. The kids do have all of their textbooks, they go them last week.

First Day of School

Today, was the first day of school. I had 21 students show up. I am about even with the number of boys and girls in my class. A few that were on my list, I knew wouldn't show up, and a few more were added to my list. We went over rules, procedures, passed out papers that had to be signed by parents, did an icebreaker, went to gym, worked on leveling colors for 100 book challenge (still have 7 more to do), and after lunch, took a math pre-test of skills. Tomorrow, have to talk about fire drill, because we will have one tomorrow and again on Friday, and I forgot to talk about that today. Also, hoping to start in on the academic schedule that I made, and will do work in both reading, math, science, and social studies.

Still don't have all of our text books and teacher editions. Our AP, is only at the school 2-3 days a week, and she will be there tomorrow. I think the rest of our books were supposed to have been delivered yesterday and we should hopefully get them in our classrooms by the end of Friday.

Did this week's lesson plans today after school. Will do next week's tomorrow after school, since I get to spend the weekend with my best friend and her family.

Let's see how tomorrow goes.
